Biography

Moojin Brothers is a media artist group that consists of Mujin Jung, Hyoyoung Jung, and Youngdon Jung. They capture strange and eccentric senses and images from stories of people around them, and highlight the new and unfamiliar aspects in our lives. They reconstruct the lives of ordinary people in various artistic ways and capture various artistic meanings from them. Also, they develop myths or legends from deep inside our lives, historical exploration of time and space and reinterpretation of classical text into film language.

무진형제는 정무진, 정효영, 정영돈 세 명으로 구성된 미디어 작가그룹이다. 주변 사람들의 이야기로부터 낯설고 기이한 감각과 이미지를 포착해 우리 삶의 기반을 탐색하는 작업을 한다. 평범한 사람들의 삶으로부터 발견한 사유의 조각들을 다양한 미술적 방식으로 재구성해 그로부터 예술적 의미를 포착한다. 무진형제는 동시대의 타임라인 속에 갇힌 복잡한 시대상을 좀 더 넓은 관점에서 바라보며 사유하고자 한다. 이를 위해 현재의 공간과 사건들을 고전 텍스트의 언어나 신화적 이미지 등과 중첩시켜 풀어낸 뒤 이를 다양한 시대의 기술 매체 속에서 제시한다.
